~You are my Drink~

These days, the sun radiates such fierce heat that turning on the hose will scald one's skin and the water from the 'cold' tap is as warm as the water heater...

...and I thirst.

Yet, it's a deeper thirst...

...and every morning,
as I wake,
without fail,
the sun bursts in,
a steadfast warmth reminding me that You wait,
calling me to sit up in Your lap.

How can I resist You?

You are more than a drink!

You intoxicate me with Your wine~

Your Spirit.
I fluff the pillows and drink deeply!
Your voice is so clear.

'I am in you, the hope of glory';

'In Me, you live and move and have your being.'

'I am for you, who can be against you?';

'You are My workmanship-My masterpiece,
created for good works that I've ordained you to walk in'.

...And so, You fill me, wash me, dress me for this day in Your robes of righteousness,
not the sweaty rags that I've become accustomed to-
-those thoughts that have clogged the conduits of Your power;
fellowshipping with my soul,
rather than wearing the garments You bequeathed to me at salvation.

I am saturated in Your grace.

It's one thing to drop clothes in a machine and let the aggitation, spinning, rinsing and more spinning remove the grime and sweat, but to allow the spirit of the Living God to cleanse one's conscience from dead works, wrong thinking and bring a paradigm shift to reflect more of Him,

I wonder-
is it similar to that metal box on my back porch or is it as easy and hopping up in Daddy's lap and drinking of His Spirit?

I prefer the latter to the former!
He says:
Hebrews 10:22 (NLT) 'let us go right into the
presence of God, with true hearts fully trusting him. For our evil consciences
have been sprinkled with Christ's blood to make us clean, and our bodies have
been washed with pure water. '

Summertime heat will soon subside~
and give way to cooler breezes and colder water,
yet my thirst for Your Spirit will go on forever.

You promised to give me Rivers of Living water...

Fill me, my empty bucket, Daddy, so I might offer other's Your living water.
